Academy president Diana Mason was on Katie Couric's show yesterday to discuss the need for more nurses in the boardroom and leadership positions. She also spoke on how good hospital nursing environments in hospitals can led to better patient care and outcomes. The segment video is posted—well worth watching! http://owl.li/zhAPz

Join us in supporting the groundbreaking “Have you ever served in the military?” campaign, spearheaded by BWF grantee The American Academy of Nursing. By asking one simple question, health care providers will be able to improve the quality of care they provide and more effectively treat our servicemen and –women. "Every day we treat patients and have no idea if they have served our country," said Cheri Plasters, a nurse in the Surgical Intensive Care Unit at the University of Alabama Hospital who will be implementing the campaign. "I saw the need and wanted to do something, especially since the challenge relates to UAB Medicine's core values."
